Hi Max, I checked my webcam settings control and contrast, brightness, gamma and exposure can all be set on the VX5000.
Should be the same for the VX3000?......have you tried the settings in the software for your webcam?

Might be an idea to try this before adding filters and such as the settings are critical to successfully capturing planets on webcams.

Having said this, whether these settings give adequate control over a dull enlarged planet is yet to be seen.

Yes, I will be using a 3x barlow, but can't try anything until my scope is properly laser collimated (I know it's way out even though it looks o.k on low power) which is also important to obtaining a clear capture.
